TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) — It’s become an ominous fixture of the mass anti-government protests roiling Israel: a coil of women in crimson robes and white caps, walking heads bowed and hands clasped. They are dressed as characters from Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel, “The Handmaid’s Tale,” and the eponymous TV series.

The women, growing in numbers as the demonstrations against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s policies intensify, say they are protesting to ward off what they believe will be a dark future if the government follows through on its plan to overhaul the judiciary.

""" a coil of women in crimson robes and white caps""" It looks like the DNC is doing a little "Global Coaching". C'mon the DNC and Hollywood probably co-op many vans together (Think Fleet(s)). When it comes to Acting...mixed with a little Preaching (think Obama worshiping Jeremiah Wright his Pastor) The DNC should be the only political party left in America...Yet they are losing voters by the Millions...Want to know why ?...Because ""Men cannot get pregnant"" embarrassing it must be for anyone to say, ""I am a Democrat"". It takes a great deal of "Cash" for someone (who is extremely Lazy) to say that nowadays.
